What about Obama?

Dear Editor:

John Colson, can you explain why Obama’s purported birth certificate contains many alterations from the verified copy of the birth certificate issued to the Nordyke twins, born the next day at the same hospital (“Sheriff Joe Arpaio used to be just Arizona’s problem,” John Colson, Opinion, March 29, Aspen Times Weekly)?

And why did Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, laugh at and then belittle the journalist who asked why the Connecticut Social Security number? Gibbs then left the podium without answering the question.

Colson considers Sheriff Joe’s constituency as “fools, braggarts, bigots and blowhards” and wonders why their sheriff babbles on about national topics that have nothing to do with his job. However, I believe it is his sworn duty to respond to the legitimate concerns of his electorate, not to mention millions of other “nut-balls” nationwide.

While John considers this “merely hilarious,” I don’t believe forgery and fraud by our president is a laughing matter. While Arpaio’s actions over the years might justify some of the vitriol Colson dumps on his head, he is the only law-enforcement officer in America with the balls to finally, officially, investigate “birthergate,” and unlike our president, he has the proper documentation proving he is qualified to hold office.
